Experience original alternative roots and stompin' rhythms from Ireland’s deep south.
"We thought we were at church!" – Jimmy Carter, Blind Boys of Alabama
"This is an amazing live band."- John Creedon, RTÉ
From the muddy waters of Ireland’s deep south come One Horse Pony, a four piece roots outfit whose DNA might be traced to the swamp lands of Louisiana, smouldering with earthy Cajun tones and raucous intent.
Roots virtuosi One Horse Pony are already veterans of Electric Picnic, the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, the Kilkenny Roots Festival, Indiependence and more, they've performed shows with musical royalty such as The Blind Boys of Alabama on their travels.
Their adventures have brought television appearances, a critically acclaimed European tour, a raucous headlining of the 7 Hills Blues Festival, their own show at the iconic Glebe Gardens venue in West Cork, and opening the main stage at the final Townlands Carnival.
Celebrating their own original roots music, One Horse Pony showcases acoustic virtuosity and potent vocal harmonies allied to brain-melting high-octane mayhem, for live shows which have to be seen (and felt!) to be believed.
Their first single 'Muddy Waters' from the Hot One EP was released to critical acclaim, and spent five weeks on the RTE Recommends Playlist.
Funded by the Arts Council under the Music Industry Stimulus package to produce their new release "Fade to Black" they plan a mid-summer release date of the 22nd June 2023.
Check in with the band on usual social media and at onehorsepony.com for tour dates, info and merchandise.
Music available for download and streaming in all the usual spots.
